Letter to the editor: Above the rest

There are a lot of good volunteers in Quesnel, one stands out above all the rest. That is my wife, Cheryl Sissons.


There are a lot of good volunteers in Quesnel, one stands out above all the rest. That is my wife, Cheryl Sissons.

Cheryl started volunteering at Riverview Elementary School in the mid 1980s when our children went to Riverview. In the 2005-2006 school year, Cheryl started volunteering again at Riverview when our granddaughter started kindergarten class.

In 2006-2007 school year, she started helping with the lunch program, Cheryl then started to run the program and is still in to this day. Our lunch program is the best program in District 28.

In 2008-2009 school year, Cheryl got involved with the PAC at Riverview. She took on all the correspondence, all the notices, all the updates for the school news letter. She keeps track of all the fundraising forms (coming in and going out).

Cheryl spends a lot of hours at home doing all of this.

She also makes sure that every students and every staff member gets a little goody bag on all special days.

Cheryl is also in charge of the dinner and dance for the parents and students of Riverview at Christmas at a low cost.

I can truly say Cheryl has the best interest of the students at heart.

Wes Sissons
